A quiet day’s racing, but I’ve scoured the cards for my best bet. Just the one tip today and it’s at Naas.
Arguably the most interesting race of the day is the 18:15 race at Naas – the Group 3 Yeomanstown Stud Ballyogan Stakes. Ten go to post on good ground here at Naas and it is Jessie Harrington’s Millisle that I’m most interested in. Top rated in the field, this horse has had some tough assignments this season already. Down the field on her first start this year to subsequent Oaks and 1000 Guineas winner Love before heading to Royal Ascot where she was 5th in the Commonwealth Cup and ran a really nice in defeat to Art Power at this track last time out. Today, it looks like this will be a good chance for Shane Foley in the saddle to land a Group 3 win over the 6f. It is a competitive heat, but Jessica Harrington’s horse looks to hold the best chance of all.
